How did we do in the month of October?
We were $5,578.99 short of our monthly budget.
How much does it “cost” to run the church?
In a 4 Sunday month it takes a minimum of $30,521. It allows us to pay the bills and fund a minimal amount to our ministries.
How much was the actual giving for the month?
The giving for November was $24,942.01.
What do we do cover the short fall?
Last month was the first time we had to tap into our “back up” reserve. Previously we were able to cover the shortages by using exisiting funds. But at this point we do not have the cash to cover on going shortages. We will continue to use this reserve until our monthly expenses consistenly match our giving. Please pray as we seek to strengthen our financial situation.
Is there anything else I need to know?
If you’re someone who regularly gives to God at New Life: Thanks! Your giving makes a difference.
If you’re someone who is not yet giving: Make a decision to get involved. Take the first step toward the biblical practice of giving. You can find out more about giving here.
And for everyone: Please take time this week to pray for the finances of both our church family, and the individual families that make up New Life.
